Should I run for editor-in-chief for my academic journal, or not?
+ more chance to get into my much desired Master Program (Creative Writing, Editing and Publishing in Melbourne)
- takes up a lot of time and I’m already stressed
- the other people on the board are intimidating, seem to know a lot more than I do.. And they seem to be a lot more ambitious than I. Although they’re only on the board for fun, whereas I’m there to try whether I want to be a professional editor.
I don’t know. I feel I’m holding myself back because I feel terribly shy, and because I’m scared I’ll get a burn out or something. What should I do..?
